    I wish to commend our gallant super eagles for their display of honour!
    My humble observations:
    I wish to commend you my brother, Iheanacho for your efforts.Hope u will perform better next time. But I want you (Iheanacho) to improve on
    1. your attacking bite and finishing. Your are our free kick specialist but you need to do serious personal drills on your dribbling skills and tactics so as to be able to easily dribble through one or two defenders on a one on one basis or when on the run.
    2. What about the R² scoring skill? Mo’Salah, Messi, Ronaldo, even our Samuel Kalu (against Lybia) and other of your professional colleagues abroad use it.
    3. You need to improve on your strength and stamina to easily muster the ball through defenders without easily falling down (with eye on the goal).
    4. Master sensational speed and tactics for a successful counter attack.
    I hope you (Iheanacho) could make a little sense from my points. Your fans want to see you become top striker for both club and country, scoring goals. Cheers bro!

    5. I wish to congratulate our Arsenal star, Iwobi, for his steady improvement in soccer. Fire on to the very heart of your opponents and unleash the strigger any day, any time (Goals!!!).
    6. the super eagles need to learn to close spaces, not allowing your opponents to trap the ball and settle to undo you before u mark, we can also upgrade our tactics and space utilization for goals against our opponent.
    7. Well done brilliant Samuel Kalu and our stand-in captain, Ahmed Musa. Kudos!
    8. Set piece taking operations need to be improved upon in the super eagles team.
    9. Our mid-fielders must master accurate, timely and calculated passes (Iwobi and Mikel Obi are doing great in this regard).
    10. Dear coach Rhor kindly integrate these talented stars into the team; Chukwueze, Osimhen, Kelechi Nwakali, et al. Thanks and God bless.

    Yours truely
    Sparkle, Africa

      Good Analysis man. Only thing I disagree with is integration of Nwakali. He had his chance for SE and didn’t grab it with both hands. Also, He needs to hit top form for Porto B like chukwueze did as he progressed from U18s to Villareal B to first team and got a call up for SE.

      A lot of our young players need to work really hard. Especially Kelechi as you said. Even for Leicester, he needs to wake up as he may fade away if he doesn’t improve his game.
